ABOUT the Global Women's Peace Network (GWPN)
AREAS OF IMPACT
Peace culture calls for a new leadership paradigm: where masculine and feminine can harmonise and enhance each other’s strengths, and provide a place for the rise of future leaders.
As the most fundamental and natural unit in society, family is the place where love between husband and wife is shared, life is created, core values and culture is transmitted, and tools necessary for citizenship in a culture of peace are provided.
The earth is our home and belongs to humanity collectively, to be treated with respect and awe - and cultivated and shared with the intention to enhance/ develop it and protect it for future generations.
Statement of Purpose
The Global Women's Peace Network (GWPN) brings together leaders, organisations and governments to solve pressing social issues and secure an environment for equitable human development. Through peace leadership based on the feminine aspect of human nature, GWPN seeks to ensure lasting peace and prosperity for generations to come.
Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon and her late husband, the Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon brought to WFWPI the guiding principles of interdependence, mutual prosperity, and universal values; through which WFWPI seeks to ‘secure peace through a culture of heart’ through the lifestyle of ‘living for the sake of others’.
At the inauguration of the Global Women's Peace Network on July 16th 2012 in Seoul, Korea, our Founders stated:
“WFWP must not remain at its current level. It must now develop to the next level by working in common cause and cooperation with women leaders and NGOs from all parts of the world, to serve greater numbers of women and families in smaller and more remote areas of the world.
WFWP should go beyond the level of a women’s NGO, and bring together governments, organisations and individuals from every country to forge a unified international effort...by utilising the Global Women’s Peace Network.”
